To start off their three-day trip across the pond, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge decided to visit the Barclays Center on Monday night to ‘watch the basketball.’
They watched the Brooklyn Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers and met NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
Dikembe Mutombo was also there, towering over everyone.
The monarchs-in-waiting shook hands and exchanged pleasantries for the entire first half of ‘the match,’ and didn’t actually get to watch any action until the second.
When they finally did make it down courtside, Mutombo was kind enough to provide commentary and play-by-play analysis.
He was even kind enough to share his popcorn.
They then met Jay Z and Beyonce, which is probably America’s closest thing to royalty.
After the game, they met LeBron James, who was kind enough to give them both jerseys.
